Conditions - in Hamilton y.-ere peculiarly favoralile to the lalior candidate. The sympathy for organi/ed
lal.or and for municipal, ownership of
the street railway, whicli liie sirike
aroused, and, on the other hand, the
feeling     against the Cataract    Power
.Company wliicli lias liven developed by
its recent dealings with 'tin* city, disposed the voters to cast their ballots
for Mr. Studlioliiie. This is not to
say that the Cataract Power Company has been unusually illiberal in
iis dealings with Hamilton, for ■ we
imagine that it has contributed great
ly to Hamilton's growth, and has
been more moderate in its exactions
than 'many similar corporations elsewhere. Hut for the moment lliere
was strong    feeling'against the   com-
. pany, and a strong ' sympathy with,
organized  labor, and hence  Mr.  Stitd-
oholme's return by u.majority of more
than Soo. ]t may also be assumed
.that the Liberal vote went strongly
for the labor candidate. This would
not be surprising under any ordinary
circumstances, for nothing, is* more
natural than an alliance between labor and liberalism when liberalism, is
permitted by its leaders to have true
expression. Wc imagine, however,
that the election has no particular
provincial significance. ' It will encourage labor to put up candidates in
other centres, and' we cannot think
that any harm will result from the
presence of a few labor representatives in the legislature. On the ot.li-
ir hand, the government is strong,
nnd deservedly strong, and the election of Mr. Sliulliolmc is a victory
for'labor .rather than a defeat for
Mr. Whitney.

The Toronto Xews, from which tin
above is taken, said a great deal in
small space when it remarked Chat
"this would not be surprising undei
any ordinary circumstances, for
nothing is more natural than an al-
liancc between     labor and liberalism,,
We have recently had a most con-
\iucing example of how Ihis interference of leaders iu such matters can
"do more harm in twenty-four hours',
not (,nly to party interests, which,
after all, arc only secondary, interests, but lo llie real material intcr-
ists of a whole province. Liberal
leaders, so called,, who arc in the political arena wearing the livery of
. liberalism, while working solely foi
private corporation interests, sticceei'
iu a very short time in- undoing years
of work done to bring together labor
and liberal interests, because such n
union means the clipping ot the claws
of corporation grafters, and as long
ii.s liberal loaders are made of tin-
stud that fails to stand the test ol
lire when applied, as it always has
lit-.n, and will continue to be, applied by private interests, just so long
will there be n gap of uncertain width
between the orgiiui/.ed labor classes
and liberalism. There is no real difference in the aims nnd objects of
real liberalism and the object of the
great labor interests ol this province,
und there would be no friction between the two if il were not created
and encouraged by interests thai are
opposed to lhe real principles of both
these sections   of whut ought lo
one of the best things about I,a F..1-
let'tc.. Tliat is the chief re.is-in why
he has made the independent \ole of
Wisconsin l.ir^e ono igh tn dominate
.the* slate, Aiid mosl of llie political
divisions of the stale.
In the recent election the man elected io be district attorney of, Milwaukee was dctc.ited fur the Republican nomination because lie h.ul been
excessively active'' in s.-ciiring in-
(lictnuiits for grafting in ir.unieip.il
affairs. La KolleUc advised hiin to
run independently, and supported him.
The only members of the Wiscoucin
delegation in congress who supported
I,a Kollello last session were re-elected. Of the five who opposed him
three were ilefeate.i for in initiation,
one was nominated and' elected, while
the sixth, Hal-cock, w;-,s defeated'' at
the polls by a Democrat whom La
l-'ollette supported. As matters now
stand, J,a Kollctte is stronger iu his
own state than ever before.
And this strength, together with the
following the Wisconsin Senator bus
acquired in the general west, especially in Kansas, Iowa,and 'Indiana, has
made him much stronger in Washington than lie was before. The interesting thing ,. is that La Kollette
lias made his record by a remarkable
exhibition cf courage. Ik- worked in
Washington just as he worked in Wisconsin, but against much harder odds.
The atmosphere of the senate is absolutely stilling to 'the new and enthusiastic advocate of  the  people's rights.
Such au advocate is looked upon as
a -'cheap man," is made to feel thai
he is ''making an ass - of- himself,"
uiiUss he has enough stamina to obviate lhe' possibility of any such feeling taking possession i f him. I,a Fol-
I-ctt-e was snubbed and' belittled, at
i;very turn when he first began his
crusade   in Washington,    But  he*  wus
,*4 ,j
right,'and he  knew  it. cud   he    stood
-his-groimd.—As-a^msuM lie ha&___ilft_
served and acquired a popular sympathy and support, that will make liim,
a factor to be reckoned with in the
forthcoming session.    -•
areiiiis.    -Still more  will these heroes
aud f.thlelcs themselves be remembered for lhe custom  they bequeathed to
Inter ages of healing sore and injured
places on ihcir bodies by the external
,-.pl lic.uiou   of   some secret balm    or
.s.ilve.   i'lie'Creek  charioteers   did not
(.merge   from   their   mad races    with-
01.1   soiii.'      severe bruise     or gaping
wound;   and    to anoint     each  injury
careful y .villi llieir favorite lialin'wsis
,-ui   indispensable part      of   the day's
programme.   Ii-\vc go back in histon
— .,eii to Hi'de ■    times—-we Iiud   that
this external   ''rubbing"  has prevail e<-
all along the   line,  and  iho   only ex-
-.lauaiioit of   its survival, amidst     si
many changes  in science, seems  to lii
in the.  fact that the external  use    o.
salves and* balms is dictated to us by
Nature herself.   Our own instincts toll
us lo rub a pint that hurls; .and    in
/.ani-IJiik the. ideal substance   to    apply to  an   injured or-diseased  surface
is universally believed   lo   have    liccn
found  at last. ■  ■
Mosl of- the ointments, embrocations and salves' that have had to suffice in the past are of a coarse consistency,, and contain quantities of
mineral poisons, rancid animal fats,
and turpentine. What healing properties lhoy may possess aro generally counterbalanced by the grave danger of inlh'.ming and contaminating the
Zam-Puk is absolutely free from any
such danger. It is a preparation
compounded purely from . herbal juices, essences and extracts- "skin-
'ood,'-' which regenerates old anil dis-
iJas.d tissues just as food rebuilds
and reconstructs the body. Zam-Huk
also gives-naturally just that assistance which Xalure is asking for when
paiii, swellings, eruptions, or inflammation .o-.ciu*.     Zaiu-l.uk    allays    all
ToTTiTs~C)riTri tatron" expels—tliscascj-
stops suppuration, stops festering aud
virtually "feeds" tho skin, toning it
•.ip-i-.i Nature's own way.
■ Zani-Huk should be in every home.
It has a wide range of usefulness, but
is especially recommended for cuts,
bruises, burns, scalds, '- sprains, stillness, swollen ■ joints, bad leg, blind
and bleeding piles, running sores, cc-

A.  J.   R.   Visits    Rockefeller   in   the    ''Hills'"—John's
Vain  Efforts with the  Hard, Hard Rogers.
During our recent trip east we stop-
pod over in l'ocantico Hills to spend
an evening with John. When they
lound out who it was knocking ,at the
gate, th dogs were called oil, the private militia warned not to fire, the
guardians   of the   threshold   and    de
tectives were,   notified,and   Rocklellcr   let it go.'
himself, dear old John, met us at the
door with, beaming face tind extended
"Well, well, old Mian." he said
heartily; "I am right glad to see
you litre in l'ocantico. TaVc od your
duds and hang yourself tip in the
closet for a week at least. I want to
have a good talk with you."
That evening, after tea wo   sat     in
front of the   open   lire   in  the library
With     our pipes,    and  John told  all
about the dastardly attempt    of    tho
United States to damage his business.
"Why, hang it," said John earnestly, laying his .hand on our knee to
emphasize the point, "wc consented
to have that anti-Shcttnun law passed
as a nv.*rc fonii so as to satisly a few
cf the over-scrupulous. When Ohio
started a Miit'ngaiiist us about ten
years ago, I called up Washington
myself by long-distance and had Aid-
rich wire right down to Ohio and
have the.' suit called off.. He
told the Ohio fellows then that the
anti-trust law was not meant to be
.taken seriously. Why, ding it, do yon
suppose it is likely that we were - going to dig up a million, dollars to put
an administration in power that' was
going to turn around and slap us into the lock-up?
"Of course, the Ohio authorities
saw the,' P°'**t at once, and the At-
.tomey-General of the state was given
the double cross. I told Forakcr then
.that it' was pretty , cheap work on
their part()who were on the ground to
let.the thing happen at all. It called
public attention to the business, and
if there is anything we want it is to
keep the"attention away from us, as
you can readily see."
'.'Yes," wc consented    meditatively,
"it is this'darned publicity that hurls
us humorists. 'The more wo. do our
work in the dark the safer wc aro."
"Have you got your Standard stock
now?" John asked, foxily, narrowing
his eyes to a slit. j
"Xo, when   eggs wenl up, wc had l<
"That must have been the bunch I
pulled in last September,': said John
meditatively. "Hut if I were you 1
would buy a little Standard oil, lock
it up in llie safe and forget it."
"Look here., old pal," wo said, slapping John on the back so lhat his
eyes,watered, "you can't unload your
old wall paper on us- If they burst
your combine your stock will look a
good deal like 't'irty kroner.'."
John winked rapidly and looked
very .solemn. Tho tears came unbidden into liis eyes.
"Wy —-dear—friend, my very dear
friend,if I may so call you, do you
suspect mc for one moment of giving
you tho wrong steer! Do you think
old John would sell out his best
friend?"   ,
Wc grasped his. hand impulsively.
"Pardon mc for the'unworthy suspicion, old follow. I was wrong, very
wrong."   ' '       ,    "
"Uluff old-Hal Rogers sometimes
does his fiineds," said John so'rrow-
fully; "he considers it business, Uut
old John,never! H isn't right. Thero
are enough to do who are not. your
friends and co-rcligionists."
"It isn't'right of Hi Rogers lo do
"I have wept with Rogers," said
Jolm earnestly, "and pointed out ,U>
him his great wrong. Uut ho is hard,
hard. I tremble for liim."

If he could give its name: "You belt"
"Pray  do, my   friend, and    do   not
The miner answered, "Yuba Dam."
"Kind friend, do not nbttsc
My Ignorance; I cry a truce
To thy bold wit; come, tell mo true;

In dealing with ' capital, in hu. \ ics-
idcutial message to, congress, Mr.
Roosevelt said some things that must
surprise many of his admirers—yet he
said nothing that lie, as a man of the
wealthy class, might not have been
expected to say.
"To iireao'.i hatred of the rich man,
as such, to carry on a campaign oi
slander and iuvcc.ive against him, to
seek to .mislead and inflame to mad-
n ss lion.sl nun whose lives are hard
and who lmve nol the kind of mortal
training which will permit them to
appreciate the danger in the doc-
triiKS preached—all this is to commit
a crinio against the body politic and
lo l.e false lo every worthy principle
and ■ tradition of American national
life. The one hope for success for our
people liis in a resolute and fearLess,
hut sane and cool-headed advance

Pro!.a' ly President Roosavelt , docs
not suspect that lie is prejudiced. No

crime against the Stale to arouse discontent in the minds of those who
are oppressed by the criminal rich. Mr.
Roosevelt, however, has a happy way
of convincing himself that many
things are righl, wliicli happen to be
1-uit.e otherwise.
Why docs he say: "To preach hat-

Who have "preached hatred of thc

A few anarchists, possibly—but certainly no one else.
."Hatred of thc rich" is one .thing,
and opposition to thc system that-

(lial.ly large fortunes "is quite anothor.
An honest lich man, like President
R.-os.vell, for instance,, is one tvpc

quite another  type.

his diniinciation at all who stir up
"hatred of  the rich'man, as such.
In his desire to hit Hearst, he over-
loo! s ilio well-known fact that not
ihe ho'.usL .rich, - but the rich criminals, have been attacked by the Xew
York newspaper proprietor.
Mr. Koosevi'lt shows where lie

There is not a trust .magnate on

President Roosevelt's claim that it is
a crint."to.arouse one set of Aincri-

A terrible crinio, undoubtedly!
Those who are victimized and oppressed by tlio trusts should not have
their eyes opened, Thoy sliould not
be told what their rights arc, lest
they should lie aroused "against their

their eyes and tolls 'them of their

Attorney-General Moody, witn their

people of tlie country in the work in
which Ihey are now enlisted, and the
successive steps of the prosecution at

unusual degree of interest everywhere.
Minnesota is especially'interested in
the c.ise because two of its sons are
represented on the government side of
it. Mr. Purdy, of Minneapolis, as assistant to the Attorney-General, will
l.e hirectly in charge of the case, although t he probably will not have
time-to go so far into its details as
to appear in court. Tlie new Attorney-General-kitowing nothing of the

attorneys of the northwest, and was
selected for this important case strictly on merit.

By W. ^V. Jermane, Colorado Build-
> iug, Washington, I). C.
Wall Street reports that Standard
Oil slock :has been failing steadily
lor several days, or ever since the
government began to manifest a determination-to bring thc corporation
to book, and, it records that tliis
week the-fall has been 33 1-3. as compared with' the price jn 1902. In that
year the * sto.k brought 840. In Jan-,
iiaiy of the present year the price
was 700, e.nd this week it got down
to 565.   This latest decline i.s due en
tirely to-the department-of jiisticeT
which yesterday filtd its epoch-making suit in the federal circuit court
at  St. Louis.
The intent of the administration is
to push the suit at St. I-ouis for all
it is worth. The attorney-general
himself will be in charge of it, nominally, but as a new attorney-general
i.s to come into ollice in a few weeks,
the direction of the case will, full to
the hands of Milton 1). Purdy, o(
Minnesota, assistant to the attoincy-
gciier.il, who is to hold that position
under Mr. Ilonuptirte. ,
Thii* suit, which will be,so import-
unit in its effects upon th). tlcsiru ol
the government to control corporate
wealth, had its beginnings iu ' rather
prosaic surroundings. A petition in
equity asking that the Standard Oil
Company he dissolved, anil that 1111
injunction lie granted forever forbidding it from giving rebates and rt-
sorting to other Illegal practices, and
a special grand jury to consider the
casei .sum up the actual proceedings,
Then, llm suit will be on.
In this action the government is
proceeding against the strongest,
most merciless niul richest corporation in the history of the world. In
iintiie the Standard Oil Company Is a
misnomer, for its dealings in oil,now
form the smallest part ol Its vast
•business. Through seventy-one subsidiary companies it controls the oil
products of the world, It'also controls, practically, the salt, siigut',
leather, copper; steel und tobiiccu industries of the United States,,and the
eUctiic'uiul gas business of scores of
Ainiricnii cities. It dominates four
of. the great banking houses ol New

Thc specific charges against^ the
Standard Oil Company, as outlined
in the St. Louis sitii, are that it has
illegally agreed with railroads to secure rebates, thus defying lhe law
and stilling competition. Theso suit:;
arc of a civil nature,.but later they
may take on a criminal form. Tho [
attorney-general.-, and   Messrs.   Purdyv
Kellogg and Morrison, , have gone
over the evidence with scrutinizing
eyes, and say that it will be almost
impossible for the government t.i fail
to make its case stick, Whichever,
side loses in the federal circuit court
will undoubtedly take an appeal to
the -supreme" court .of the Vuilc-l
States, "which will then have an opportunity to write another historic
opinion, one which shall defin*: the relationship which, in thcs.! days of
captains of finance, should exist uiuler oiir laws and form of government
between capital and the public at
large. Such au opinion as tliis, if it
shall harmonize with the spirit ot
the day, will, it is predicted, ol il-
,self alone effectively ov'erliini all criminal trusts and drive their agents oul
of business, thus accomplishing nl
one stroke 11 result which has been
aimed nl. and   talked about for years,
The history of the Standard Oil
corporation reads tike n romance. No

year 1879, Away lack in 1M62 Sam

Ohio, to deal in oil, with n capital -if

In 1870 the Standard Oil Coiiipnny
was foinicd. so successful hnd this

1.S75 this cnpiicity was increased lo
111,0011 barrels daily, nud llie capital
to 53,500,11011] The company already
controlled the oil business in Ohio,
ami had begun to crush lotnpi'titior
in adjoining stales. In i8«3 the
Staii'liml Oil trust was formed, which
took over n number of subsidiary

j^LL n odcrn science goes to prove
it   herbal   mcdicii*es   are
7 vastly superior to those con
taining mineral ingredients.   The herbs of the field and the trees of the
forest constitute nature's " medicine chest;" and the highest benefit which 0\
science can confer on man is the' discovery of nature's medicinal balms
and esssnees, and their preparation in form suitable for use by the people.
Bileans for Biliousness—the great Australian cure for indigestion, head-'
ach_, debility, liver trouble, etc.--are purely vegetable.   They are entirely
different and superior to ordinary liver and stomach medicines.   It is well
known that liver medicines hitherto in use mostly contain bismuth, mercury
and other harmful mineral products, and rely upon these ingredients for"
their temporary effects.   These mineral constituents are very injurious if taken
for,.long, and produce such effects as that of loosening the teeth, causing the
hair to fall out, etc.   Dileans are entirely superior.   They are compounded from
extracts and juices ofthe finest known medicinal plants.   In taking them there
is no fear whatever of any harmful secondary effects.   They cure that which *
they are taken to cure, and do not leave behind -them evils worse than the
original ones.   They do not merely purge and weaken, like the old-fashioned
medicines, or do th^ work which the liver and stomach should do.   They tone
up and enable these organs to fulfil their proper functions, so that when a cure
is effected and Bileans are left ofr", the organs remain strong and healthy. Users
of Bileans need therefore never fear their use will lead to .the contracting 3
of thc terrible "pill-taking" habit*
